Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate {Healthy} Chip Muffins

Have you ever made peanut butter muffins? Peanut butter + muffin = perfection. Really, folks. Don’t be afraid of this mixture  – the peanut butter and banana and chocolate chips in muffins. It’s lovely.

Another perk (besides the joyous mixture described above) is that they are healthy! Whole wheat flour, oat bran, honey, canola oil. Healthy + peanut butter + muffin = more perfect perfection.

You have no excuse not to make these. Unless you are allergic to peanuts or something like that. In that case, you do have an excuse to make them. Peanut butter muffins + peanut allergy = big problem.

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip {Healthy} Muffins

1 1/3 cups whole wheat pastry flour

1/2 cup oat bran

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. cinnamon

2 ripe bananas mashed (about enough to make 1 cup)

2/3 cup 2% milk (replace with nonfat milk if desired)

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup natural chunky peanut butter (I like Smucker’s)

2 T. canola oil

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 egg

2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, whisk together mashed bananas, milk, honey, peanut butter, canola oil, vanilla, and egg until smooth. In a smaller separate bowl, combine flour, oat bran, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Add to banana mixture; mix until barely combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Spoon into 18 greased muffin cups, filling them about 2/3 – 3/4 full. Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes or until muffins test done. That was easy, wasn’t it?

These are delicious.

Let me explain about the two pictures. I couldn’t decide which one to post, so I put up both. Which do you like better?

Thanks to Noble Pig for this fantabulous recipe!

Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 2 Corinthians 5:9-10
